Welcome to Mr. Downing's Math Class!
We will be starting to use Prodigy later in the year, a game-based math program that helps meeting kids at their level of math. We will still use our curriculum, but if kids need a little catch-up, prodigy can help, and if kids want to accelerate, Prodigy can help. We have the ipads in class, but the kids are welcome to use this at home as well.
They will go to www.prodigygame.com and then use the class codes below. THEY NEED PARENT PERMISSION IF THEY HAVE NEVER USED PRODIGY BEFORE. If you used it last year, you can use the same login, and if you are new, you can create a new account.
We will also be using Khan Academy, a more focused program that helps kids meet their goals and raise test scores. We will still use our curriculum, but if kids need a little catch-up or wants to get ahead, Khan can help.. We have the ipads in class for all kids, but the kids are welcome to use this at home as well.
They will go to www.khanacademy.org/join and then use the class codes below.
I am Mr. Downing and have been at Antioch for 29 years. I taught 6th grade math for 8 years, then was the Director of Technology for 14. Missing the classroom, I came back 8 years ago and have been teaching 6th grade math ever since. I want the kids to enjoy coming to class and learn how math is and has been used to make our world great!
I know you will all have a great time on the TEAM TITANS! We are looking forward to an exciting year. All of the homework will be listed under my HOMEWORK CALENDAR link at the left. My TUTORIAL link gives access to tutorials for many of the topics that we will be covering.
